It also includes fixes related to previously reported issues, which make this release version stable and robust enough for PDF files creation, manipulation and transformation to other support formats. If users required to add an external video link in PDF document, now can use MovieAnnotaiton object. However when there is a requirement to embed media inside the PDF document, Aspose team need to use RichMediaAnnotation. This annotation allows to embed media file within the PDF document and sets video/audio player, implemented as flash application. Due to license restrictions, Aspose team can not include third-party flash scripts in a product, so users need to provide their script for playing videos or audios. Users should provide flash application code. For example, users can use videoplayer.swf and audioplayer.swf which are distributed with Adobe Acrobat and may be found in Multimedia Skins/Players sub-folder in Acrobat folder. Another option is using StrobeMediaPLayback.swf player or any other videoplayer implemented in flash.
